The aim of this research project is to identify a preliminary architecture of a flight control actuation system concept for energy optimized aircraft system architecture with the focus on more electrical aircraft. At Linköping University a design framework is being developed to assist in the evaluation of aircraft flight system at a conceptual level using dynamic models which has led to the development of a tool named CAVE.
In this paper the use of the framework to approach the problem of finding a suitable flight actuator system for a number of flight control surfaces distributed over the aircraft with different boundary conditions (maximum torque and flap deflection) is presented. Dynamic models for three of the most commonly used actuation technologies have been developed in Dymola and each system has been optimized with mass and energy consumption as the objectives.
